Adoption of a federal system in Nepal has been a watershed event in the political development path of the country. Although the country enters into an uncharted water, the new state restructuring offers unprecedented opportunities for the local level governments to plan and execute its development path. The Constitution of Nepal 2015 enshrines the rights of local level governments to address the aspirations of the people residing within the jurisdiction of the local level governments. The newly elected local government bodies want to seize the moment of euphoria filled with hope to design a clear development path. In this context, all administrative and development units are seeking to intervene in their areas that minimize adversities and externalities, and at the same time explores multifold opportunities for the sustainable development through integrated efforts
